Helllllllloooooo! I’m still here. I’m reading and buying books and actually looking forward to reading said books.
First off, I picked up The Shining by Stephen King for the Shine-along in September. I read it years ago. I think I was shocked at how awful Jack was. It will be interesting to re-read it now.
I gave up on Save Me the Waltz by Zelda Fitzgerald. It’s supposed to be somewhat autobiographical and it was interesting but…. half the time I didn’t know what the hell she was talking about. Remember Brad Pitt’s commercial for Chanel No5? How confusing and weird that dialogue was? Save Me the Waltz is like that at times. For example,
“Sometimes,” commented David irrelevantly, “your face looks like a soul lost in the mist on a Scotch moor.”
I could enjoy it at some other point in time but I just don’t have the patience for that kind of thing at the moment. Anyway, they have money and then they don’t and then they do, and eventually it’s going to end badly. Moving on.
I finished The Heiress Effect by Courtney Milan last night. I’ll be writing up a review soon, though I don’t know when because something has come up that I have to deal with. Life, man.
